Federal Register / Vol. 67, No. 214 / Tuesday, November 5, 2002 / Notices


As explained in SSR 968p (‘‘Titles II and XVI: Assessing Residual Functional Capacity in Initial Claims’’), our RFC assessments must consider an individuals maximum remaining ability to do sustained work activities in an ordinary work setting on a regular and continuing basis. A ‘‘regular and continuing basis’’ means 8 hours a day, for 5 days a week, or an equivalent work schedule. 5 In cases involving IC, fatigue may affect the individuals physical and mental ability to sustain work activity. This may be particularly true in cases involving urinary frequency. For a child applying for benefits under title XVI, we will evaluate the functional consequences of IC (either alone or in combination with other impairments) to decide if the childs impairment(s) functionally equals the listings. For example, the functional limitations imposed by IC, by itself or in combination with another impairment(s), may establish an extreme limitation in one broad area of functioning (e.g., attending and completing tasks) or marked limitations in two broad areas of functioning (e.g., attending and completing tasks, and interacting and relating with others). As with any other impairment, we will explain how we reached our conclusions on whether IC caused any physical or mental limitations. EFFECTIVE DATE: This Ruling is effective November 5, 2002.

5 However, see footnote 2 of SSR 968p. That footnote explains that the ability to work 8 hours

a day for 5 days a week is not always required for

a finding at step 4 of the sequential evaluation

process for adults when an individual can do past relevant work that was part-time work, if that work was substantial gainful activity, performed within the applicable period, and lasted long enough for the person to learn to do it.
